UPDATE: Some new photos of the upcoming Cruel World 5 from Hypebeast as we lead up to its 28th February release.
The latest sneaker installment from the ongoing kind-hearted 'Cruel World' collaboration between BAIT and Saucony has been revealed. We're up to number five in the series now, and this Shadow 6000 has been dubbed 'New World Water', and shines a light on the clean water crisis we're currently swamped in. Clean drinking and bathing water is a true luxury, with billions of people around the world struggling to find safe reserves of water. A portion of proceeds from sales of this release will be donated to Water.org, a non-profit organisation that works with partners on the ground in suffering communities to implement projects that provide clean water and improved sanitation. Great stuff from BAIT and Saucony! As for the shoe itself, well of course you can sense the H2O inspiration – deep navy and frost blue is splashed across the upper, with a pitter-patter of rainy speckle sticking to the midsole. Leather lining and insole, plus premium wolverine suede on the upper ensures these are a comfy and durable ride too. The BAIT x Saucony Shadow 6000 CruelWorld 5 “New World Water” is a global exclusive to the four BAIT stores and BAITme.com. The shoe launches on Saturday, February 28. Limited quantities will be available in-store at all four BAIT locations and online through a raffle.
